Castro lands top 6 in March 2013 LET


Lara Gale Cayanong Castro, Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) graduate in March 2012, has given prestige to the School of Education, Arts and Sciences (SEAS) and to the entire University for placing sixth in the March 2013 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).

Castro ties with two other new elementary teachers each garnering a rating of 87.80.

In college, Castro was a ward of Miss Florida Mallillin, the assistant dean of the School of Business Administration and Accountancy (SBAA), for two years before she became a CICM scholar until she finished her degree.

The CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae or Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) Scholarship, named after the congregation of the University’s founders, is offered by the University to economically-challenged but deserving students.

Castro was also a dean’s lister and an academic scholar although she admitted that she had wanted to be a consistent dean’s lister or academic scholar.

After graduation, Castro headed to Cavite and sought work in Cavite Christian School. She said that preoccupation with teaching and financial constraints impeded her from taking the September 2012 board.

On her board success, Castro shares, “A little knowledge, experience, hard work, and great faith in God helped me to be on top.”
